Jeep may not necessarily be labeled an affordable or practical vehicle brand normally, but the manufacturer has forayed into the luxury vehicle sector with the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Sometimes luxury brands make vehicles that have what appear to be all of the extra bells and whistles possible, yet they still lack basic features that even the most practical cars on the market offer. Is the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, a premium SUV, missing key features like Apple CarPlay?

What is Apple CarPlay anyway?

Everyone knows that using your phone while you drive can put you, and other drivers on the road, in grave danger. Apple CarPlay is a product from Apple that makes it simple to connect your iPhone to your vehicle to play music, view maps, make phone calls, and so much more without having to get out your phone and tap on its screen.

You can use Apple CarPlay to control many aspects of your phone using your vehicle’s dashboard display, making it easier and safer to change playlists, queue up a map, or listen to a voicemail. Plus, you can use Siri to perform voice commands, like making a phone call or adding something to your calendar, without having to take your eyes off the road.

According to Apple, over 600 models of cars on the market come with Apple CarPlay, and you can get Apple CarPlay added to your vehicle by purchasing an aftermarket system. Apple CarPlay is a hugely popular vehicle capability, and it’s easy to see why most consumers would want such capabilities when buying a new vehicle.

So, Does the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Have Apple CarPlay?

It sure does! Despite other luxury carmakers sometimes leaving out consumer-friendly features like Apple CarPlay, Jeep made sure their premium SUV offering still comes standard with Apple CarPlay. According to Stellantis, the Grand Wagoneer will also come standard with Android Auto, which offers many of the same capabilities to Android smartphone users.

According to the Jeep website, any Jeep vehicle with a Uconnect® 5 system installed comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as do many vehicles with a Uconnect 4 system. Jeep vehicles have Uconnect systems from 2016 or older do not have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capabilities.

Other Infotainment and Tech Features of the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Besides Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer comes loaded with other great tech and infotainment features. The Press Kit released by Stellantis shows that this luxury SUV will have a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, which makes it easy for up to 8 wireless devices to connect to the internet and, stream music, videos, and surf the web.

It also comes with two touchscreen displays, one measuring 10.1-in and the other measuring 12 in, to control various settings and display maps. The passenger side will also have its own 10.25-in screen, allowing passengers to help with navigation, view the vehicle’s exterior cameras, and control various entertainment functions. Plus, the passenger screen also comes with an Amazon Fire TV built-in.

Need to charge your devices? This premium SUV also comes with up to 11 USB ports, including two USB type C ports for faster charging and a wireless charger for the front passengers. Clearly, the designers at Jeep wanted to go all out when it came to infotainment for the 2023 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, and it appears that they have created a high-tech vehicle that is capable of entertaining anyone on a long road trip.
